In my previous post on Bahrain I have shared some renown buildings and architectures in Bahrain. Those includes Bab al Bahrain, Financial Harbor Building, World Trade Center Building, Bahrain Circuit structure, Corniches, Bahrain Museum and some prominent Mosques. I will be sharing the detail information on some of those places also in my coming posts.
In this post I am starting with one of the Bahrain's natural beach resort named Aldar Islands Resort. Aldar island is 12 km away from the city of Sitra island (as shown in the map picture). A daily shuttle/boat is operated between city and the Aldar island for pick and drop off.
If you are planning to visit the Aldar island, you have to first visit the island's office located in Sitra. The timings are from 9 AM to 5 PM. In the office they will do the initial formalities and then direct you towards the shuttle service. One thing that is very important is to bring the original CPR/Passport with you (I have a bad experience as I did not take the CPR for one of my family members and I have to go back to home again come back). Following are some of the pics of the office area:
On the resort first thing to do is to book a hut. You can get a normal or VIP hut based on your requirement. Normal hut costs 10 BD for a day and private hut costs 25 BD for a day. They also have arrangement for big tents that can fit around 80 peoples. Chalets can also be booked for 4 to 22 family members.
My recommendation is to bring your food with you. Not much options are available to try on the resort.
If you are living in Bahrain or visiting Bahrain and did not yet to this resort, I would say to go and experience it. It's not going to be a tiring visit. You can just visit there to relax, chill and enjoy your time. That's it for this blog. For more details of Aldar resort you can visit there website and you can also call them in case of any queries (there contact details are also on there website).
